WASHINGTON fAPI - The SteDS lOWGrd f-owrnment has finally agreed ' to allow antiwar demonstrators A w i I lo erect a big, multicolored lent INeW image in downtown Washington for ! heir "countcrinaugural" ball DEP. RICHARD H. ICHORD, new chairman of the House Com- Sun-lay night. mittee on Un -American Activities, wants to change the name I The demonstrators, who plan of that oft-Criticized body and has introduced a bill to that effect; a "counterinaugural'* parade for the second tbne. "Un -American as a term Is ambiguous," says the Missouri Democrat. "It's not a good legal term, and that concerns people who have more libertarian philosophies.'" Ambiguous the term may well be, but controversial It defi- nitly has been. It is doubtful, however, whether Ichord's suggestion for a new name-—the House Committee on Internal Security —will be any more semantically palatable to those of more libertarian philosophies. The words, unfortunately, carry connotations of the secret dossier, the knock in the night, the kangaroo trial and all the other depredations committed in the name of "internal security" by the Nazi SS, the Soviet NKVD and their like. , Probably no name would be palatable for an investigating body j permit had already been issued, that hails people before it to inquire into their private affairs, I Fannie Davis, coordinator for activities and beliefs, which of necessity must employ the services ot unidentified informers, which is not a court of judgment but which too often has given the impression of being one. Another change Ichord proposes to implement involves the cornihittee's investigative techniques. There will be fewer summonses for hostile witnesses who can be expected to refuse to testify under the Fifth Amendment. "There is no purpose in bringing a Commie before the committee and asking him questions on which we know he is tjoing to take the Fifth," says Ichord. While it may be arguable whether only "Commies" take the Fifth or whether anyone who takes the Fifth is Ipso facto a "Commie," this change in the committee's operations will be welcome if only for the fact that it may spare the nation any repeats of farcical hearings in the past which have not only tended to discredit the committee and ridicule the office of congressman but have led too many people to suspect that there may be something un -American about the U .S. Constitution itself. down Pennsylvania Avenue Sunday, the day before President-elect Nixon's inaugural parade, will also use the tent as a staging area. Harry R.

Willard Wirtz, outgoing secretary of labor, says the federal minimum wage requirement should be increased from $1.60 an hour to $2, and , "Nobody who works should be left out." Wirtz, in his final report to Congress Thursday, said coverage under the Fair Labor Standards Act "should be extended to every job within the reach of federal authority and provisions should be made for encouraging full supplementary coverage, at the same level, through state legislation." The secretary proposed that all jobs covered by the labor act prior to 1966 be raised to $1.80 hourly starting in 1970 and to $2 in 1971. The AFL-CIO announced earlier it would seek $2 minimum in the 91st Congress. Its president, George Moany, said Wirtz "pinpointed a major cause of poverty in America and his preemption for its solution is just, sensible and achievable."

Earlier in the day, Sen. Karl Mundt, R-S.D., introduced a proposed constitutional amendment to estabish a direct plan of choosing presidential electors. Two proposed amendments were already before the Senate. One, by Democi-at Sam J.

Sobering Thought COR FIVE YEARS, a team of University of California mamrnol- OgiSts and herpetologists has been pouring radiation onto a 20-acre Atomic Energy compound in the Nevada desert to what would happen to the wildlife. They will report that reptiles remain unaffected by massive radiation while mice have become sterile. Computer projections of their data indicate that all mammals in the area will eventually become extinct but that reptiles will survive. Some scientists believe that changes in the sun's radiation had something to do with the ending of the 200-mlllion-year reign of the dinosaurs, possibly by drastically altering the climate.

Adam Clayton Powell, D-N.Y., might get back his seat on the House Education and Labor Committee, but not. its chairman. He'll be a freshman. Powell, expelled from the House in 1967, won a special election that year, and was reelected last year. One condition set by the House for his return was that he relinquish his seniority. Another was that he pay a $25,000 fine as reimbursement for government expense money which an investigation committee said he improperly used. The Democratic Committee on Committees Thursday reportedly agreed to put the Harlem congressman back on Education and Labor but official action still will have to be taken by the Democraic caucus. WASHINGTON (AP) --• President-elect Nixon Thursday appointed Brig. Gen. George A. Lincoln to head the Office of Emergency Preparedness. The appointment must be confirmed by Ihe Senate.

Today In History By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Friday, Jan. 17, the 17th day of 1969. There are 348 days left in the year. Todays' highlight in history: On this date in .1949 the trial of 11 top ranking- Communists in the United States, charged with plotting the overthrow of the federal government, began in New York. On this date- Ill 1706, Benjamin Franklin, American statesman, inventor and pliilosoplier, was born. In 1917, the United States bought tine Virgin Islands from Denmark. In 1950, nine men, wearing Halloween masks, held up a Brink's armored car m Boston and escaped with 51 million in cash and $500,000 in checks, the largest cash robbery in the nation's history. In 1955, the atomic submarine Nautilus began first sea tests in Long Island Sound. In 1962, 10 prize winning contestants of the so-called rigged television quiz shows received suspended sentences in Special Sessions Court in New York after pleading guilty to perjury charges. In 1963, President John F. Kennedy sent to Congress a proposed budget calling for the biggest spending program in history— $98.8 billion for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1964. Ten years ago British and Egyptian negotiators in Cairo reached agreement on a pact to end financial differences arising from Egyptian seizure of the Suez Canal in 1956. Five years ago France moved to recognize Communist China, despite efforts of the United States to.dissuade her. One year ago In his State of the Union message President Johnson proposed extending the war against crime and big city problems; a $186 billion budgett and a tax increase were among the president's proposals. GOP Attacks LBJ Figures On Budget By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) — Repub licans in Congress are complaining that the $195.3 billion spending budget submitted to Congress by President Johnson will produce a deficit instead of the surplus that Johnson claimed. Democrats, meanwhile, indicated they will wait to see President-elect Nixon's legislative program before they act to put Johnson's proposals for full funding of welfare programs into effect. Senate Minority Leader Everett DirksOn of Illinois said his fellow Republicans are waiting to "get the figuring straight" before pouncing on Johnson's contention that his! budget would give Nixon a $3.4 j billion surplus in the fiscal yeer! beginning July 1. But Sen. Jack Miller, R-Iowa. a new member of the Senate Finance Committee, pinpointed the GOP's main objection. He said Johnson had counted as revenue surpluses being p'le..' up in trust fund accounts for future Social Security and medi­ care benefits. "What really counts," Miller said, "is the regular operating accounts. If deficits Occur in these, they must be covered by Increased federal borrowing— the rOnt Cause of the inflation that has been sweeping the country. "This is a deceptive budget." Sen. John G. Tower, R-Te.w, a Senate Armed Services Committee member, said Ihe cOursc of the Vietnam war will have a heavy influence on the ability 0° the new administration to operate in the black. ! Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D| Mass., said , Johnson had taken j ''a courageous cOurse" in re| commending increased welfare spending, and "I hope tln-t President Nixon will see .the aeed for continuing programs to meet our domestic problems." Kennedy, assistant Senate Democratio leader, and ft possible candidate for his party'* 1972 presidential nomination, said he thinks most Democrat* will want to see NitfOn's program before drafting any alternative proposals. "The responsibility lies with the President-elect to suggest action in a variety of fields." he said. "Hopefully there will be an early meeting of the Democratic Policy Committee to identify the areas in which the party ought to move to meet the needs. "I am sure we will want to develop our own priorities but we must wait to see what Mr. Nix- propoues." or Law For Today. •. LVCORPORATION CAN PROVIDE PERPETTJAI/ EXISTENCE FOR BUSINESS Q.

Last week we studied with you the pattern of New Testament Worship. Today, we direct your attention to the Now Testament PATTERN OF SALVATION: JESUS SAID: ". . . For if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins". (John 8:24) JESUS SAID: "I tell you, Nay,- but, except ye repent, y« shall all likewise perish". (Luke 13:3) JESUS SAID: "Whosoever therefore s'hall confess me before men, him will I confess also b*for« my Father which is in heaven". (Matt. 10:32) JESUS SAID: "Go ye into all the world, and preach th* gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be served; but he that believeth not shall be damned". (Mark 16:15-16) PETEfc PREACHED: "Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." (Acts 2:38) ". . . For See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount." (Heb. 8:5) The above is the Lord's Pattern of Sdvdtiori Coming from His lips cind that of the Apostles. This is the Pattern being tOught by Churches of Christ today. We cordially invite you to attend our services and hove a port with us in following the divine pattern in becoming a Christian, in worshipping God and in living the Christian life.
